Tarkan on stage in the Netherlands

One of Turkey’s biggest pop stars is set to perform in the Netherlands on 23 april 2011 in Heineken Music Hall.

Tarkan, who was born in Germany and raised in Turkey, will play the Heineken Music Hall as part of his latest European tour.

Tarkan has been known for the use of sexual and romantic themes in his work and has been nicknamed the “Prince of Pop” by the media. He has released several platinum-selling albums during his career, with an estimated 29 million albums and singles sold.

The singer is hugely popular in Turkey, but also has a large following in the country of his birth Germany and his appearance in the Netherlands is sure to attract fans from throughout the surrounding area.

Tarkan’s performances are known for drawing huge crowds in Turkey, where he has also broken records with his album sales.

He released his first LP Yine Sensiz in 1992 and Come Closer, his long-awaited English language debut, emerged in 2006.

The performer’s most recent album is Adini Kalbim Yaz, which translates as ‘write your name on my heart’ and was released in July last year.

Tickets for Tarkan’s show are priced between EUR49 and EUR79.

Doors will open at 18:30 local time and the music is due to begin at 20:30.
